CONECA (pronounced: CŌ´NECA) is a national numismatic organization devoted to the education of error and variety coin collectors. CONECA focuses on many error and variety specialties, including doubled dies, Repunched mintmarks, multiple errors, clips, double strikes, off-metals and off-centers—just to name a few. In addition to its website, CONECA publishes an educational journal, The Errorscope, which is printed and mailed to members bimonthly. CONECA offers a lending library, examination, listing and attribution services; it holds annual meetings at major conventions (referred to as Errorama) around the country.

CONECA was formed through a merger of CONE and NECA in early 1983. To learn more about the fascinating HISTORY OF THE ERROR HOBBY and THE HISTORY OF CONECA, we encourage you to visit us our main site Here

    My first thought is that this is just a very worn reverse die (die deterioration). The dies can be changed independently so it is very possible to have a sharply struck side along with a rather mushy other side.

      This lettering makes this entire bottom edge of the coin rim included around 2 times the normal thickness i can measure it with my calipers when i get home vs another 83 p and see how much thicker the coin is and also try to get flat height pics its extremely noticable in person ive seen a ton of dimes and fewer quarters like this before but only maybe 1/3 the thickness added that this one has

        It's probably die wear - there is no way it is the design - and it is NOT a class 6 doubled die. I cannot think of a striking error that would do this except die fatigue
